From origin and biology, horses are herbivores and animals of the plains. Their place in the food chain is that of prey, their survival strategy is to flee and seek protection in the herd. Horses are one of the most specialised species in the world with their whole physiology uniquely adapted to the needs of these living conditions.
Should cats be nourished with raw meat as well?
In comparison to the dog the cat is a true carnivore. It takes in very little additional next to meat and bones of their prey, what is a little different from the dog. The dog eats his prey even with the stomach which is filled with large amounts of undigested food in case of herbivores. Thereby the dog, in contrast to the cat, takes in a larger amount of carbohydrates that we replace especially with fruits and vegetables in the dog feeding.

In the long run it will make your pet healthier, as your pets' organs are not designed to deal with the harsh synthetic additives and preservatives in synthetic or processed foods.
